Paper Indian Corn
 
Add a festive touch to your holiday table by filling a vase with colorful paper cornstalks.
 
Materials:
Natural-colored raffia paper
Scissors
Glue
Yellow poster board
Colored tissue paper
 
Step 1:
To make each stalk, cut three 18-inch lengths of natural-colored paper twist (sometimes called raffia paper). Untwist them, then trim the edges to resemble corn husks. 
 
  Step 2:
Fan out the husks so that they overlap and use a few drops of glue to hold them together. 
 
  Step 3:
From yellow poster board, cut out an ear of corn (about 10 inches long and 3 inches wide) and glue it atop the husks. 
 
  Step 4:
Now crumple a bunch of 3-inch colored tissue paper squares to create rounded kernels and glue them to the ear. Lastly, gather the husk bottoms and tie them together with a strip of raffia.
